Who We Are

We are a church for the community.

 

What we mean by that is that we are for the flourishing of our community. We are a church that exists to serve and love our neighbors. If we could partner with you in some way to bring flourishing in or through you, please reach out to us!

 

We are a small, but mighty, church that believes our greatest asset is our heart for God and each other. We love to be in community with each other. We believe our mission is to bring our community together – with God and with others.

 

We are a church united around mission and relationship, not doctrine. Wherever you are in your journey towards God, you are welcome here. We do not want to control your journey; we just want to travel with you as companions. We believe that our call to love our neighbor is more important than differences of theological understanding. We believe our unity makes our diversity constructive.

 

We are a church of extravagant welcome. We believe that God welcomes us extravagantly and we seek to do the same. Jesus never turned anyone away and neither do we.

 

We are a part of the United Church of Christ. We are grateful to be rooted in the UCC. We changed our name to Burr Ridge Community Church because we believe that although we remain United Church of Christ, our mission and call is to be a church for the community. Everyone is welcome to worship here regardless of denomination.
